AmaZulu appear to be determined in their fight for survival in South Africa’s top-flight, despite the fact that the club is currently staring relegation in the face.
Five wins from 22 matches is all that the 16th-placed Durban-based club have on the Absa Premiership log with 20 points, going into this weekend’s match against Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
“The morale is high in training, the guys are focused, we are ready to go and fight for the maximum points. We all know the position we are in right now, we have to give it our all and make sure that we stay another season and compete in the Absa premiership,” said AmaZulu winger Talent Chawapiwa, as quoted on AmaZulu’s official website.
Usuthu lost 2-0 to the Chilli Boys in the first round match in November at Durban’s Princess Magogo Stadium.
“Chippa United are a ball playing team, but not as convincing when it comes to defending, if we can capitalise on that, we stand a chance of collecting all three points. The support we have been receiving from the people who follow, and support the club has been great, it is very encouraging. We promise to do our best to make them proud and we would like to urge them to continue supporting us,” the Zimbabwean international concluded.
